"This is a favorite Filipino vegetable dish, although the slightly bitter taste of bitter melon needs a lot of getting used to. Cooking it this way lightens the bitter taste."

Bitter melon is different but good to stabilize blood sugar. I added ginger, didn't have tomato and used "patis" instead of using shrimp. Boiled bitter melon first to remove some of the bitterness; used vegetable broth to simmer and marry flavors. Also added black bean garlic sauce. My husband liked it.
